I am fascinated by the collision of
visuals and sound and how
it adds to the meaning.
My piece is about losing memories, what is going on inside your brain when you forget, what people feel when this happens. I wanted to put that into dance, into movement instead of words or writing so people could see in those movements what happens when you wake up and you go on with your routine to realize that your routine is no longer the same. You forget things, and you realize you are lost, like having a fog, and you cannot see anywhere. At the same time, you feel fear, you try to get out of there, but something more powerful does not let you go. Your memories, your souvenirs are locked in. The light represents your electric impulses inside the brain, the memories encode there, still present, but now you can’t access them.
